COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With a huge, Pacific Northwest hop aroma & character upfront, Storm King subsides into massive, roast malt complexity. More flavor than mere words can adequately describe. Rich and substantial, it will warm your heart.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - MAR 15, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 Average initial head that dissipates quickly. Under this lies a completely opaque black stout. Not too much lacing but small traces of foam hold the edges. Nose is very sweet with chocolate hitting me first followed by some coffee-malty-ness. The taste is sooo great. It is bitter like bakers chocolate, but the hops really don’t overwhelm. There is a slight taste of burnt bread, but even this is very pleasant. It was extremely drinkable with almost no trace of alcohol, more less 9.1 percent of it! The end is predominantly coffee like. My first Imperial Stout.

NITRO. Served on tap at Victory. Dark black color with a tan head. Dark chocolate coffee aroma. Coffee smokey malt flavor. Medium body. But too much smoke and not enough imperial. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

flemmingwillum (1159) - Nysted, DENMARK - APR 24, 2016
En sort satan med et lille skum. Kraftig aroma af chokolade, kaffe og sød karamel. Smagen er tør og med masser af espresso, mørk chokolade og bitterhumle. Meget blød og let i munden, samt meget afdæmpet kulsyre.

The aroma is full of chocolate, coffee, dates and other dried fruits. The color is pitch black, as it should be. The taste is full of chocolate, coffee, sweet caramel and some espresso notes are detected. Nice and velvet feel on the tongue. A nice and long bitter finish. Excellent beer!
